“You see… that didn’t hurt a bit, did it!!” Usually that phrase is used by dentists after they ‘wrench ‘ out a tooth or drill for a cavity. But, it can also be used by pastors who teach on the subject of money!! Last week we started a brand new series called “RE-THINK MONEY”…looking at what the Bible had to say about this very important subject. You see …that didn’t hurt a bit did it?!?
Actually, when you look at the Bible and grapple with some of the hard truths of God’s Word..it should hurt (yes, even a little). In following Jesus it was never promised to be easy. In fact, Jesus talked a lot about those that would take the easy, wide road versus those who would follow Christ on the narrow, but defined pathway. This Sunday we are going to look at “re-thinking our money…as we go through tough times”. You won’t want to miss it.
Would you mark your calendars for Sunday November 20th. We will be introducing our Mexico #1 Team (Walt and Sarah Siebert) and we will be having a Mexican lunch (by donation for the Mexico team) and also a Silent Auction (lots of great stuff to bid on). Its going to be a great day so why not invite someone out to hear what God is doing at Casa De Luz. We also have a Mexico Team #2 (Clay and Jeannine Lode ) that will be going July 23rd-30th, 2017. If you’re interested in going next summer, there is a Mexico Team #2 meeting on Sunday Nov 27th at 3pm.
Its going to be a great Sunday at Alderbrook. We hope to see you at church.
